Managing event and logging settings
In the Event Management tab of the Global Settings > System Variables page, you can define the following default settings for the event and alert logging functions of your system:
Event : An event is any action that is initiated either by the user or the device.
Alert : An alert is any type of event for which a notification can be sent if required.

Defines the maximum time in days that persistent events stay logged in the database. The default value is 365 days.
|New Alert Check Interval (sec)||The time interval after which new alerts are checked. The default value is 3600 seconds. If set to 0, the check is deactivated.|
